Embracing the Full Potential of Wi-Fi 6E
Wi-Fi has become an essential component of the global digital infrastructure. As the backbone of the digital economy, Wi-Fi connectivity is embedded into the way we live and work. And the technology is just getting started.
With Wi-Fi 6 adoption now in full force, the industry expects the technology’s improvements to fuel new
innovation, especially in areas such as the Internet of Things (IoT), augmented and virtual reality, and
high-definition video streaming. As a result, the global economic value of Wi-Fi will increase from $3.3
trillion in 2021 to $4.9 trillion by 2025, the Wi-Fi Alliance estimates.
As consumers look to upgrade to the new generation of Wi-Fi, they’ll expect CSPs to deliver not only on the higher throughput of Wi-Fi 6E but also on improved quality of experience (QoE).
In today’s extremely competitive market where connectivity speed is no longer a differentiator, customers want a lot more from their providers. As emerging technologies such as AR/VR and 8K video streaming take off, consumers will expect to benefit from the full potential of Wi-Fi 6E. Providers that plan smartly and get ahead of the curve will emerge as the market leaders.
